  • I was very satisfied with both the contents and the amount of the exhibition. The museum, which covers from ancient to modern in Luxembourg, was an easy-to-understand exhibit with a life-size model of the house where the ancient people actually lived, as well as display sibetween exhibits that reproduced the Houses of Parliament.

  • Very nice museum showing the history of the city from 940 to present. Located in a building from 1735, many mock-ups from different times, multimedia presentations. I highly recommend it.

  • It is a historical museum of the town, and the appearance is very stylish. Luxembourg has had a long history, and there are many such museums.

  • Comprehensive history of the city through which can also easily understand the history of the whole country. Very friendly prices and free access for students make the experience even better. Also there's a free audio guide available and a nice terrace with a view.
  • Museum is free with Luxembourg Card. A well thought out museum, where you follow the "Luxembourg Story" from floor 0 up until 2nd. This museum has some interesting temporary exhibitions too. Definitely worth a visit on a drizzly day.
  • This museum is beautifully put together. It is over six floors with the bottom being the oldest material. It is very engaging and informative (also has English descriptions).
  • Absolutely amazingly done. Sadly when we were there the fourth floor was closed however the permanent exhibition on the story of Luxembourg is absolutely fantastic. The only negative thing is that it is very confusing where to start it to get through in chronological order. It starts on the very bottom floor and from there make sure to ask the friendly staff where to start. Now all you need to do is follow the numbers on the floor and once you finished one floor, go up another one.
  • Very small but nice museum. Lots of explanations of the evolution of the city. Videos and images are a good support.
